LAVALLETTE – Celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month with the Alborada Spanish Dance Theatre’s performance at the Ocean County Library Upper Shores Branch in Lavallette, 2 PM Tuesday, October 4.
“Dances from Spain” will showcase authentic, traditional Spanish music, costumes, and steps.
Considered New Jersey’s premier Spanish and Latin American dance company, the Alborada Spanish Dance Theatre was founded in 1965 as the Maria Alba Spanish Dance Company. The group regularly toured major East Coast venues such as New York’s Carnegie Hall and Symphony Space.
In 1980, Maria and current Artistic and Executive Director Eva Lucena introduced dynamic choreographers and dancers to project a broad perspective of Spanish culture. Today, Alborada maintains a vast repertoire of dance forms and dance dramas with origins in Spain and Latin America.
